TOLEDO, Ohio — Two homes were damaged in a fire that began at the location where a teenager was fatally shot less than 24 hours earlier in central Toledo.

The home is a total loss due to the fire, which was initially spotted by a police patrol. An adjacent house was sustained minor damage.
Investigators later ruled the fire an arson. No one was injured in the fire.
Marvin Dyer, 57, was later arrested and charged with murder in the shooting of Butler. The coroner ruled Butler's death a homicide due to a single gunshot wound to the head.
